Liberated Log Cabin Update
I have not been blogging much lately.. just way too busy at work. Work just gets in the way of quilting - way too much! LOL. But I have made some progress on my Liberated Log Cabin quilt that I wanted to share!
So I started out by laying out the rows to get the best balance of color, pattern, etc. I was trying not to 'overthink' this... Lucy helped to distract me. :-)
She helped ALOT.....
We finally decided on a layout that she was happy with...
Here is the completed top on the guest room bed. (note the little ears at the top of the bed.... that's Gracie!) I have been trying to decide if I need to add a border. Border? No Border? Border? YES! I think I am going to add a scrappy border of some of the same fabrics in the top.
Gracie finally got bored with my decision process and just went back to sleep!
Now, wait until you see what I did with all those scraps I trimmed off those blocks.....
